Very few words for this newly born band called Dance Me Dead. They declare they steal their inspiration from mixed and varied images of drinks, dance, death and the perverted face of Dolly Parton. Do we actually need another seven piece outfit from Stockholm with 80s new wave and post punk references? We surely do. Listen to new single "I wish you could hear me now" and dance till you drop dead.

A trip into space is always a fascinating adventure full of ambiguities. Sweet Trip aren’t from outerspace but from the land of San Francisco. Led by Roberto Burgos -a young immigrant from Panama- they worship My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, Pale Saints, Stereolab and Cocteau Twins. They furtively create their own soundscape while manage to mitigate mediocrity by blending ambient, electronica and indie in style. It should be noted that Burgos has furthermore remixed songs for the infamous Japanese shibuya-kei idol Takako Minekawa. “Your World Is Eternally Complete” is now out on the new “Little Darla Has A Treat For You, Volume 26” (Darla Records). Sweet!

I have recently been infected by the Swedish virus Berndt. It’s a dangerous one, conducive to bad health results such as weird dancing moves and extra peculiar shopping therapy. The Berndt are young and stupid and cool and fearless. They are also proud of their stage presence and claim that this is their big asset. Whether they do provoke a live chaos or deliver an explosion of energy, emotions and fiery rhythms is yet to be confirmed. What is already verified, however, is their unique enthusiasm and talent captured on both their EPs [“Bap! Bap!” and “…Walk”]. Debut album is expected to be out January 2010 (Pophat Music). Virus Alert!
